New York Red Bulls Training Complex
Morris Township, New Jersey
Having outgrown their current space, the New York Red Bulls partnered with Gensler to design their new training facility that will bring professional, academy, and youth programs together under one roof. Gensler’s master plan for the 16-acre soccer training complex elevates the sport with its eight pitches and upgraded amenities enabling top talent recruiting, coaching, and referee clinics. The holistic environment, expressed in the fluidity from indoor to outdoor spaces, not only provides athletes a place to practice and play, but promotes rest, recovery, and education. Integrating a culture of wellbeing, nutrition programs teach the benefits of healthy eating and are experienced in the communal dining rooms. Unlike any other facility in the U.S., the youth soccer training academy and on-site dormitory provide the organization an opportunity to scout young talent, while young players can see themselves on a path to becoming a professional member of the Red Bulls team.
